Great, Criminal Evidence! June 29, 2011
by
Written in a clear, lively, and personal style, this practical textbook for students in career-oriented law enforcement programs presents the basic concepts of criminal evidence applied in the criminal justice environment. I ordered this textbook for class. The cost was extremely reasonable over buying a new book. The seller kept their word as to the condition. It was in better condition that I thought it would be. I received the textbook much earlier than I expected as well. The textbook itself is awesome. It fits into an integrated learning system that helps students learn and apply important course concepts.
